My 2 Cents.

90 % of the time for me it comes down to sidewall collapse due to Broken bead contact.

Ca or super glue will crack and separate after a lap or two.
I use a Q-tip with the fuzz pulled off and.....Shoe Goo My beads on both 1/12 and touring. It flexes.

Absoloutley Decimates traction rolling for me so I can focus on dropping lap times.

Don't laugh till you've tried it.

So you use CA first then shoe goo on the outside part only or use shoe goo only ? I'll try both to see what works best....

The shoe goo will also have to cure overnight(24 hours) to reach full strength, but I think it's very promising when you consider that One smack with the wall can crack the CA .....

I can't really speak to touring specifically as I rarely get a chance to race a high traction race. But in other classes I have had a lot of luck by using superglue on the sidewall and sometimes very little on the top edge of the tire.

Seems to me that sometimes instead of going nuts with the suspension tuning it makes more sense to look at what the tire itself is doing. The sidewall and insert design is pretty primitive on RC cars and I think high traction tracks are really pushing the designs past what works. Killing some grip with glue seems counter intuitive, but I've seen it work very well at some relatively competitive events.

I saw this a lot at the last Carpet Nats I attended. That was a few years ago, don't know if it is the hot ticket now?

I've had moderate success with lots of CA and three degrees camber up front though....
